Just moved to NYC for a few months while I'm working here, and am a bit nervous about locking up my bike on the street while I'm inside away from it for 4 hours at a time. Not sure how much more careful I need to be here compared to Boston where I live during the year. In the past my locking method was to have a mini u-lock on the frame with an on-guard cable securing the front and back wheel, then locking that to the ulock. I'll be locking up in an area that's highly populated, near lots of shops and businesses.
Am I just paranoid? Or should I beef up protection....? And I realize that I can never be completely safe. Any determined thief will be able to get away with my baby... But I'm just trying to figure out my best bet for now.
thanks for any suggestions.
